MOETA — Oasis on the prairies. To create something from what was a bare summer fallow field to a retreat of beauty is a major accomplishment. Something for the community to be proud of.
The Meota Jackfish RV Park is nearing completion after some two years of planning and groundwork. It has 30 seasonal lots developed with Meota sewer and water as well as 50-amp power. More than 300 poplar trees were planted and sod was laid to create this park-like setting. This Sundance species of poplar has been developed in Saskatchewan over the past 15 years. An attractive six-foot wood fence encloses the oasis
